Mexico


Have you ever looked closely at the Mexican flag? The crest in the center has a cactus, with an eagle and snake or something sitting on it.

Judging by the flowers and the shape of the pads, I’m guessing the cactus is Opuntia cochenillifera.

Check out the picture here, and more here, to really see how closely that illustration matches this cactus.
